O Josephine!

O Josephine! Review

Jason has caught the hiking bug and decides to walk the Wicklow Way, where he encounters more sheep than he had bargained for. Leonard Cohen's storied life has been well archived, but never with so many Jason-esque liberties taken. (Did you know he beat Fidel Castro in chess? Learned the Heimlich from Frederico Garcia Lorca?) Two detectives are on a mysterious stakeout, but as secrets and motives are revealed their snooping becomes fatal. And, finally, the remarkable rollercoaster love story of Napoleon and Josephine Baker.

Title:O Josephine!

    At first I wasn't sure what to make of this strange little collection of stories, but the more I let go of narrative expectations, I really appreciated Jason's minimalist style and offbeat sense of hu...

    The artwork is the usual Jason, but the stories are a bit meh except for the one about Leonard Cohen....

  • Christopher

    Jason's O Josephine! is an odd, surreal collection of stories. They are quirky and fun, though a couple rely heavily on a mixture of absurdity and gallow's humor, which may not be to everyone's taste....
